'Missing OAP' found dead on Ashford road
Wednesday 25 July 2012
A man found dead in the road during the early hours of the morning is believed to be a missing pensioner.
Alfred Cole, 82, was reported missing from the Ashford area yesterday morning, Kent Police said.
Officers believe he was involved in a crash and his body was found on the Maidstone-bound carriageway of the A249 in Bobbing at 2.45am today.
Kent Police serious collision investigation unit (SCIU) is investigating the crash and officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident.
Detective Sergeant Scott Lynch said: "We have launched an investigation to establish exactly what has happened in this instance. As yet we do not have any details on the vehicle that was involved in the collision.
"The road does not have any lighting and it is quite possible that the driver of this vehicle did not know they had collided with a pedestrian.
"It is important that anyone travelling on the A249 in the early hours of Wednesday morning checks their vehicle for signs of a collision and contacts us immediately if they think they were involved.
"I would be especially keen for drivers of large vehicles to check them thoroughly."
Witnesses should call the SCIU witness appeal line on 01622 798538.
